Love them all Mary, really nice simple line work. And I love how you've used the grey too. Fab!

I particularly like this beggar - the reincarnation of an immortal whose soul could not return to his own body after a spirit journey.
There is so much character in this face, as in the original drawing. To think that some Chinese artist perhaps captured the features of an actual beggar from life so many hundreds of years ago, and rendered them for us to gaze on still today!

Thank you for your comments, I really enjoyed some of the characters there, they were such a contrast to the regular drawings!

Great work Mary - my particular favourite is the 3rd image - his slightly hidden expression has me enthralled ;-)
